    Per your notes, looks like the circuit protection from the compressor is getting activated.

    this may be related with a serious issue with the compressor.

    Providing more information about when this started and other symptoms helps to diagnose an exact source of failure.

How do i reset computer on a delta88 year 1988

There is no resetting any cars computer

Everyone reads & copies the others questions

All you doing is asking to turn off the Malfunction
or DTC (diagnostic trouble code) light

Then you loose all stored data your mechanic needs
to find & resolve any problem

No resetting,not windows 7.

When repairs are complete most lights go out,
some need to be turned off (not reset)

That is done with a code reader,professional scan tool,
or disconnecting the battery

If you disconnect the battery on some vehicles,not much will
work again,no radio,door locks,all kinds of bad things happen.

You have an older OBD1 car 1980 thru 1995

Only if you have had repairs made & ALL issues resolve,
then disconnect the battery. Off & back on,no need to hang out
for 30 min

Need help w LG refrigerator..temp control not working. Was told it is computer chip Can you advise?

Hello there:
There are a couple of reasons why this controle may be not working (or it may be working but not properly)
I will post this solution in 2 seperate posts so you can troublehoot this in detail ok before going right to the chip and associated parts
It's not cool If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions,
Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not,unplug the refrigerator for 30 min then plug it back in than reset it. first at the highest setting than slowly turn it counterclock wise to see if it clicks if not the temperature control device itself may be bad and not the chip itself.
the chip rarly fails
Next, see if the compressor motor is running Cooling is poor
